If you remember these you grew up in the 1890s

You've ever ended a sentence with "Indeed!"

You can sing the lyrics to "I Guess I'll Have To Telegraph My Baby"

You remember when Tsar Alexander III of Russia, Heinrich Hertz, Emily Dickinson and Harriet Beecher Stowe died.

You know that "Elementary, my dear Watson" doesn't come from the Sherlock Holmes books and that "Are we not men?" comes from the creatures in "The Island of Dr. Moreau".

You remember when it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to take three turns about the rose garden.

You got super excited when you could leave school at the age of 12.

You remember reading "The Battery and the Boiler or Adventures in the Laying of Submarine Electric Cables"

You know the profound meaning of "By the by"

You have pondered why women can't vote.

You've danced to "Bicycle built for two". Females: had a new motto, Males: got a whole lot lonelier (Whether she loves me Or loves me not, Sometimes it's hard to tell)

You remember the craze, then the banning of labor exploitation and anti-competitive business practices.

You still get the urge to use "countenance" to describe moods.

Maine was both a naval vessel and a state.

Rough Riders.

When playing cowboys and indians with friends you fought over who got to be who............and still all ended up being General Nelson Miles.

You remember when Andrew Carnegie became popular.

"CRISIS AT HAND! SPANISH TREACHERY!"

You remember reading the newspaper before there were color prints.

Two words.. Wounded Knee.

You never got injured in a steam carriage

You wore a health corset but tightened it too much anyway..

“I love little Pussy, her coat is so warm,
And if I don't hurt her she'll do me no harm.
I'll sit by the fire and give her some food,
And Pussy will love me, because I am good.�?

You remember stream vs. horses

You remember Thomas Edison when he was still cool.

You knew European royalty and their life stories.

You played football before the official rules

You had at least one precious heirloom from your father or grandfather and brought it everywhere

DRACULA AND FRANKENSTEIN WERE THE BEST HORROR BOOKS

You knew the White Man’s Burden by heart.

Pencils and erasers were the stuff!

All your school supplies were second hand and most likely farm tools

You remember when the new short-layered capes were always sold out.

You remember a time before the labour unions.

You've gotten creeped out by Emily Dickinson

You thought Spain would finally take over the world

You remember when everyone went yellow fever crazy.

You remember when high-wheel bicycles were cool.



When we were younger:

Before the European arms race...

Before the Great War...

Before the Prohibition...

Before Women’s suffrage...

Before the Panama Canal

Before alternating current...

...Back when you walked uphill both ways to school.

When leather shoes were cool.

When petrol was sold in tins in boxes.

When we recorded stuff on tin cylinders & paid $.05 for a flicker-show.

When we used the radio to hear news.

When Emily Dickinson was still alive.

When the New York Wanderers were the only professional team.

Way back.

The great plains.

USS Maine means something to you.

Monopolistic companies.

Flying V in football.

Playing football until you are too injured to keep going.

Carnivals.

Tree Houses.

TOPHATS!!!!!

Before the English translation of the Communist Manifesto

The annoying Bolsheviks.

Getting the privilege to sit in a car.

Drinking Coca-cola when it still had coke.

Reading the Saturday Morning newspaper without your day-coat on.

Teddy Roosevelt wasn’t a president yet.

When Einstein was still a patent clerk

Or what about:

Rudyard Kipling

McKinley in the Philippines

The original European dynastic order.

Kaiser Wilhelm and Queen Victoria.

White Man’s Burden

Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.

When Christmas was the most exciting time of year.

When $0.05 seemed like a million, & another penny a miracle.

It makes me all misty-eyed.

"you know einstein did his best work when when he was working as a patent clerk?"

"A PATENT CLERK! YOU KNOW HOW MUCH A PATENT CLERK MAKES? We need money, and facilities. What we had here was great. They gave us money, and facilities and never had to produce anything. You dont know, youve never worked in the private sector."

great movie, you are truly awesome if you know what that slightly obscure quote is from.

Ghostbusters, 1984. Six years to early, chief.

I was 5 when all this was around, and I can relate to almost all of it.

everyone loves to feel nostalgic. i'm glad i spent my earlier years without a home computer or internet. and the lion king can't compare to 101 dalmations. please. the sound effects in that movie are rediculous (in the best way possible)
